Biz Barriers to Break Through

Building a brand, normalizing wealth, and making the internet a better place.

Running Your Biz… Only Better

Are “sales” and “self-promotion” dirty words? Does massive wealth make you uncomfortable? Listen up: the world might need your business to thrive. And to make that possible, it may be time to rethink a few things.

While it’s easier than ever to show up as a business owner today, many bosses still face faulty beliefs that true success is a selfish— or even malicious— thing. True, there are plenty of companies that use their success in unethical ways. But if we’re ever going to see the changes we want to see in the business world, some of us have to start being it.

If you’re not showing up or selling your offerings to the people who need you most, you’re doing them a disservice. So sit yourself down and prepare for a pep talk. Today we’re reconsidering branding, wealth, and what it means to be boss.
